Swinging Clubs For Cheese Makers

Registration for the popular Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association (WCMA) Golf Outing and Trap Shoot will open Tuesday, May 18 at 10 a.m. (CT) at WisCheeseMakers.org. Act quickly to reserve space at this summer highlight for all dairy processors and industry suppliers, set for Wednesday, July 21.

“WCMA is thrilled to be able to bring members together for a day of networking and fun,” said John Umhoefer, WCMA Executive Director.  “This event sells out quickly, so mark your calendars for sign-up on May 18 and golf and trapshooting on July 21.”

Nearly 600 golfers will enjoy a scramble tournament on July 21 at one of four courses: Lake Arrowhead’s Lakes and Pines Courses, Bull’s Eye Country Club and the Castle Course at Northern Bay Resort, all in Central Wisconsin near Nekoosa. Each golfer’s registration fee covers their golf cart, greens fees, range balls, cart gifts, skill and winner prizes, as well as lunch, social hour and dinner. Registrants may request their preferred course, though placement is not guaranteed. Names of individual golfers are not needed upon registration; simply indicate a requested number of golfers and make payment.  Note that WCMA will build foursomes for individual golf registrants.

Trap shooters – novices and experts alike – are invited to register for WCMA’s concurrent event at the Wisconsin Trapshooting Association (WTA) Homegrounds, just four miles from Lake Arrowhead. At 12 noon, individual shooting and group challenges will begin. No license is needed, and first-time shooters will get personal instruction offered by WTA volunteers. Each trap shoot registration includes ammunition, instruction, ear and eye protection, cart gift, skill prizes, as well as lunch, social hour and dinner.  Participants are encouraged to bring their own shotgun, if possible, as limited quantities are available for novice participants.

The BMO Harris Bank Lunch will be served to golfers before the shotgun start and at the turn at each course, and trapshooters will have lunch at the Homegrounds, beginning at 11 a.m.

After golf and trapshooting, all attendees will meet at the spacious, all-new Lake Arrowhead clubhouse to enjoy the Amcor Flexibles North America Social Hour and a buffet dinner.  Note that WCMA is also offering a registration option for those who prefer to attend only the social hour and dinner.
